Imperial White

Boston Beer Company

Witbeir

9.0 by rich have another Imperial White by Boston Beer Company

Aroma: Wow, helluva lot going on here boys...fruit, spice, hops, and alcohol...Mr. Adams you have my attention. First taste: The taste matches my description on smell. Very complex, and definately a style bender/breaker for a Wit beer. And, the Sammy trick is that 10.3% ABV doesn't overwhelm, but there's a nice warm feel to it... in my tummy. Overall: There's a ton of shit to say about Jim Cook / Sam Adams / Boston Beer Co that I'll save for a later rant. When I bought the 4-packer, it was w...read more

Über Sun

Southern Tier Brewing Company

American Wheat Ale

7.0 by scot have another Über Sun by Southern Tier Brewing Company

This is my first Southern Tier. I have heard a lot about this brewery and it seems that most enjoy almost anything they brew. So I thought: "self, time to try one." Wowzers! Imperial IPA overload. Two finger head with average retention and lacing. Has the aroma of hops and citrus (touch of wheat). Hops floods the taste buds followed by some citrus with a bit of hops and small touch of alcohol aftertaste. Medium creamy mouth feel. Well balanced. A refreshing beer that has a nice alcohol...read more

Über Sun

Southern Tier Brewing Company

American Wheat Ale

7.0 by rich have another Über Sun by Southern Tier Brewing Company

Aroma: It's a big-ass Imperial IPA, with a straight forward smell. Initial taste: The IPA signature strong hops balance a very sweet wheat to a perfect blend. Overall: I'm working on my appreciation of IPA. And with great brewing skills that ST apparently has in the execution of this big IPA, I'm starting to understand beer geekdom's affection for getting all hopp-ed up. You can miss the hops in Uber Sun, unless your taste buds were ripped out. But great ingredants, brewed in perfect balance re...read more

Domaine DuPage French Style Country Ale

Two Brothers Brewing Company

Bière de Garde

8.0 by scot have another Domaine DuPage French Style Country Ale by Two Brothers Brewing Company

I decided after yesterday's success with Two Brothers to try another. Also, it is serving as pre-gamer as Rich is coming over for a few tonight! Out of the bottle the beer pours clear, deep amber in color, little white foam with the same amount of retention and lacing. The aroma is that of sweet malt. A hint of earthiness and caramel are in there also. Above average amount of carbonation seen in the beer but the bubbles are smaller than "normal" so they don't affect the taste. The flavor c...read more

Ebel's Weiss Beer

Two Brothers Brewing Company

Hefeweizen

8.0 by scot have another Ebel's Weiss Beer by Two Brothers Brewing Company

I have had Two Brothers beers' in the past and didn't seem to like them. Maybe I didn't know how to appreciate them. I am giving them another chance. Pours with almost no head - white is the color of what is there. The color is a tad clearer than a "normal" Hefeweizen. Carries the aroma of clove, slight banana ester, and even yeast. The flavor follows the aroma with a strong clove and yeast, with some mild banana. Tasty. Average body. Overall, has the true Hefeweizen character. Another...read more

Honey Moon Summer Ale

Coors Brewing Company

American Wheat Ale

5.0 by scot have another Honey Moon Summer Ale by Coors Brewing Company

This is a Coors product so you get what you expect from a macrobrew brewery: light in color, flavor and aroma. Pours with a three finger, white foam with little retention and some lacing. There is an above average amount of carbonation (normal for a macro brew). To the nose the wheat comes out distinctly. Some citrus also surfaces. Beer starts off sweet malt, light citrus, and finishes off with some honey. A crisp, clean beer that isn't complex but is definitely refreshing while sitting ou...read more

Odd Notion (Spring '09)

Magic Hat Brewing Company

Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer

2.0 by scot have another Odd Notion (Spring '09) by Magic Hat Brewing Company

Didn't know what to expect before I opened the bottle. The beer looked light and the label mentions it was brewed with agave and poppy seed flavors. So off to the website I went without popping the cap; just staring at the bottle and wondering what refreshing goodness lay behind the sealed bottle top. The website has a special mini-site just for their line of odd notions beers. They give the visitor the ability to give feedback on each their three odd notions: spring, summer, and winter. My...read more

Circus Boy

Magic Hat Brewing Company

Hefeweizen

7.0 by scot have another Circus Boy by Magic Hat Brewing Company

The bottle calls it "The Hefeweizen!" so the pour was as expected: golden, unfiltered, about a finger of white head, and, this one, had quit a bit of carbonation. Retention is average. Wheat taste isn't as strong on the palette as it was on the nose. The slight hint of lemon carries through (made with lemongrass - what is it?). Light body and mouth feel. High carbonation tickles the nose. The smell of wheat overwhelms the old nose. Maybe a hint of lemon. Krieky, this goes down way too ea...read more

Wacko

Magic Hat Brewing Company

Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer

5.0 by scot have another Wacko by Magic Hat Brewing Company

Wow. Surprised by the color as the pink in the beer comes out very quickly. Held it up to the sunlight to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me. Had a finger-and-a-half, pink hued head, with good retention, and slight lacing. Average amount of carbonation. Malty aroma, possibly a little beet scent gives the idea of some fruit. Very tough to pick up much on this one. Medium mouth feel. That finishes sweet but possibly a little dry. The taste doesn't seem to carry the beets (maybe that's...read more

Dancing Man Wheat

New Glarus Brewing Company

Hefeweizen

7.0 by rich have another Dancing Man Wheat by New Glarus Brewing Company

Aroma: Spicy, anise/clove. First taste: The bottle label only said "wheat beer", but upon first taste....surprise, Hefe Weizen. Very rich, thick, and sweet with traditional "clovey" spice taste. Overall: My full disclosure is that I am not the biggest fan of the hefe weizen style.It's my prejudice against overally flavored brews, esp in a style that's typically intended for the summer months. But, this brew won me over with another surprise. After drinking a bottle, I logged into New Glarus's we...read more

Circus Boy

Magic Hat Brewing Company

Hefeweizen

8.0 by rich have another Circus Boy by Magic Hat Brewing Company

Aroma: Citrusy. Initial taste: Very clean and refreshing. The lemon, citrus taste is very subtle, unlike some brewers tendency to go over the top on "extra" flavors. Overall: Here it is, the beginning of summer, and in the upper midwest we've got to savor our short time in the sun. So I find myself deep into the enjoyment of summer brews. Wich by the way, seem to be one of the largest categories, in terms of offerings from brewers. I loved this beer. It's crisp, dry, and the lemon-grass adds j...read more

#9

Magic Hat Brewing Company

Fruit Beer

8.0 by rich have another #9 by Magic Hat Brewing Company

Aroma: Mysterious sweet, maybe floral. Totally unique. Initial taste impression: The unique aroma dominates first taste. Smooth, rich, and deep taste. Overall: One of a kind drinking experience, and a very respectable beer. Like MH says in their description, "Not so Pale Ale", it's not a cliche, it's accurate for this crisp and refreshing brew. Hops are there in the background, but like all great beers, the ultimate goal is to balance the ingredents into a mix that\'s a greater sum than individu...read more
